A long gray sectional is paired with a low glass coffee table and hardwood floors for this contemporary living room. Exposed beams bring a touch of rustic to the space, while white walls keep the room light and airy.
This dining room's industrial-chic style is the perfect dinner party conversation starter. Designers paired a table with a thick slab top and a mechanical-inspired base with button-tufted chairs and a picnic-style bench.
"In the world of tile we are seeing an explosion of sizes, shapes, materials and patterns," notes Dean Howell, president of Atlanta-based MODA Floors & Interiors. Particularly popular these days, he adds, are large-format tiles — tiles that come 12" x 24" and even 36" x 36" — as opposed to the tried-and-true 12" x 12" tiles. In addition to looking great, larger sizes mean more tile surface and less grout lines to clean. Dean cautions that large-format tiles are heavy, requiring a perfectly level substrate and a professional installer for the job to come out right.
Urban Dining Room With Exposed Brick Walls and Wine Bottle Chandeliers
Exposed brick and enormous windows provide an urban backdrop for this dining room. A mix of seating around a long, wood dining table creates a casual atmosphere. Overhead, pendants made from repurposed wine bottles enliven the room both day and night.
The owners of this Atlanta townhome often select artwork in their world travels. Here, black, white and metallic pieces help carry the home's color story into the living room. The scale of the artwork help ground the two-story space, making it feel more intimate.
Mixing up the ceiling levels give this apartment a loft-like, airy feel. Huge windows let in tons of light and a streamlined metal-and-wood staircase with lots of open space doesn't block sightlines across the room.
Neutral Urban Open Plan Dining Area With Blue Chairs
The open concept design of this urban apartment easily connects the casual dining area with the kitchen. The corner placement of the charming round tulip table takes full advantage of the amazing city views.
Night or day, this urban living room always has an incredible view. The white leather furniture mimics the white of the skyscrapers outside the window and makes a nice contrast with the dark wood floors.
